Malick Goes to IMAX

Leave it to Terrence Malick to always keep us guessing when his next film will drop.Recently we got word that his long-rumored documentaryVoyage of Timewould finally be dropping this fall and on massive IMAX screens to boot - before the star filledWeightlessthat he shot back-to-back with this year'sKnight of Cups.Like his movies,I guess the release schedules and post-production meander as well.

But even withoutWeightless's star power,Voyagewill pack wattage of its own.Ennio Morricone will be scoring the film,reuniting him with the director after almost forty years since they collaborated onDays of Heaven.And there may not be recognizable faces on screen among the eyepopping visuals,but Brad Pitt narrates (Cate Blanchett is set to narrate the extended,non-IMAX version that is also rumored).

If you have your doubts about another Mallick meditation on existance,consider that this version will be running at a swift forty minutes.Without a narrative to distract from the auteur's transfixing visuals (albeit this time without Emmanuel Lubezki behind the camera),this one should give us precisely what we want from him without the frustrations of his recent work.Check out the just released trailer and imagine it on a huge IMAX screen:

Voyage of Timeopens in IMAX on October 7.What other Mallick film would you see in IMAX?

Looking at Nathaniel's listing of thehighest grossing documentarieslist of the year so far and I was – to put it mildly – a bit bummed out.Not surprised,of course.

Certainly,the comfort of one's home is a perfectly fine place to view many of these films,and a necessary advancement given the general downturn in boutique and arthouse cinema-going.But as a lover of movies,going to the movies,and writing about movies,it is frustrating and a worry that no documentaries other than Michael Moore's disappointingWhere to Invade Nextand the Christian-themedPatterns of Evidencehave made any sort of impact at the box office (and even then,Moore's film is a dramatic slide from even his most recent filmCapitalism: A Love Storyat $14m) in four months of the new year.

The reason the doc box office figures particularly worried me was because the first quarter of the year is peak opportunity to take advantage of a quiet marketplace...
